In the course of the last weeks there have been 14 percent more automated hacking attempts than through the last fortnight in the world. Up until now, this year there have been 1,600 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. Throughout the same period last year, the amount of brute-force attacks has risen by 6.6 percent. Simply put, Syspeace blocked 1,400,000 automated hacking attempts in the world.

The data is released from Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves companies time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to discover and prevent. Syspeace tracks all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers conscientiously. The company is a global innovator on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed information on brute-force attacks.

During the automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to ultimately get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically checked to find the right one.

To keep problems out and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that protects businesses from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
